Most of Rotterdam Logistics Services vessels are self-built. The company’s engineers take the hulls and install the tanks, engine rooms, controls, loading and unloading machines, cargo heating, tank washing systems and all the other facilities required. Everything is specifically designed for the transport of oils, fats and derivatives. Rotterdam Logistics Services has always used steel and stainless steel for constructing tanks and instruments to ensure higher standards of hygiene, more efficient cleaning and increased product quality. The tanks are fitted with hot water heating.
The terminals in Rotterdam and comply with the BRZO2015 (Seveso III) directive, which means an extended safety management system audited annually by the local authorities. Rotterdam Logistics Services elected to have one system for all eight of its terminals. This means that the terminals in The Netherlands also all comply with the strictest regulations.
